  1. 100,000 unemployed and they can’t find 70 strawberry pickers.
    Time to suspended the benefit in those areas.
    (and then make it easy to get back on when the job finishes)

    • You can’t trust most of those on a benefit to not destroy your crops, damage the plant and sabotage the packing do they get bored off the site and can go back to sitting on the couch.

      • Ok get them out picking up rubbish in our streets, parks and industrial areas. Pay them a decent wage and give them time off to go to job interviews.
        If they don’t do this, then terminate their benefit.
        That would encourage many of them to get a better job.

    • Dig.As a longtime grower I have to say that decisions being made about planting at the present time lack thought.
      The strawberry grower cannot expect to plant a large area and then just demand pickers.People are not going to pick strawberries for a pittance and then be told they are no longer wanted when the crop is finished.Bad planning.
      Corporates are planting hundreds of acres of apples in HB right now and will expect the government to allow cheap labour from overseas to harvest in two or three years time.Sorry the corporates are mainly offshore owned and have stuffed the industry.There is little benefit to NZ from this approach.

    • We tried using WINZ hires for a cleaning company. Roughly $25 per hour cleaning. Not one came wanting to work, they were going through the notions to retain their benefit. The one guy we interviewed that wanted to work was a yoing Indian student, who had a visa expiring and who could not get it renewed. He came to the interview with business development ideas and was raring to go. But no visa, no hire. Yet the polar opposite to the benefiary culture.

      “People who brought infants and firearms together should expect stern penalties, he said…”

      Then he sentences the filthy scumbag to just a couple of years in the hotel/prison.
      What’s the bet it’s out in under 12 months. The judge is a dud.

  2. interesting comment by Duncan in reply to Mark saying that he would bottle St Heliers air, not much chance as Mark is pakeha… or words to that effect, isn’t that racist?

    Speaking of which, does everyone run to the papers for their hurty feelings now like the waitress, at the viaduct?

  4. As many of us said when the Toxic Gnome appoint the SLG as PM, it would be back to the socialist past…and so yesterday was.

    With Sleaze Galloway moving a bill to put the remuneration setting of MPs pay back with Fran Wilde and her committee. A case of an ex MP looking after her mates…..

  5. A mother and her young son got in a taxi to Courtney Place. As it turned into the street the young boy said, “What are all these ladies standing around for mummy?”
    His mum replied, “You might as well know the truth son, they’re prostitutes, they sell themselves to men for sex”.
    “Do they have loads of babies?” Asked her son.
    “Of course they do,” she replied, “How do you think we get labour, Green and NZ First Party politicians”.

    • That reminds me of the joke I heard on RNZ Morning Report this morning from none other than Sleaze Galloway.

      Ferguson was interviewing Sleaze over the reinstating of the wage setting of MPs salaries.

      Sleaze came out with this gem….

      “We have to pay attractive salaries to ensure parties are attracting high calibre people to be MPs”….

      At which point I’m running of a list in my mind…like
      Chloe Swarfega;
      G Golly
      Mega Fightiri
      Phil Twitford
      The Silly Little Girl
      Clare Curran
      David Clark
      Kelvin Davis (is he on witless protection again?)
      Gareth Hughes
      JAG(uar)
      Marama Davison
      Willie Jackson
      James Shaw
      Grant Robertson
      Skid Mark
      Shane Indiana Jones
      David Parker
      Carmel Septic Tank
      The Toxic Gnome
      Jenny Selesi
      Megan Woods
      Michael Woods
      Angry Andrew
      Ginny Andersen
      Chippy Hipkins
      SLeaze Galloway
      Tracey Martin
      The other female (**** Marcroft) NZF MP from Rodney
      Maria Lubhic
      The Labour lister from Northland
      The rest of the Liebore Maori caucus
      Eugene Sage….

      Sh*t, that list is frightening, we pay for it and we are told these are high calibre people.

      • I find it interesting that there are double the number of Tongan female cabinet Ministers than there are Maori female Cabinet ministers.
        The standard is not very high.
        Maori: Nanaia Mahuta
        Tongan: Jenny Salesa and Carmel Sepuloni

        You can only have one Maori female Cabinet Minister and it is Ha hooter .
        That’s your starting point for Quality Assurance. Wow!

        Also 2 (at least) of the top 10 Cabinet ministers have parents who have been convicted of fraud.
        We are seeing the results of the low breeding.

      • Actually, I reckon that the reverse is true. Pay way less and get people who don’t need a high parliamentary Salary to get the job done because they already have sufficient income.
        Key, Trump both being good examples.
        By the same token though Turnbull wasn’t much good.

        Leftards hate the truth. They’ve realised truth can slip in under the guise of humour, so it has to be gotten rid of.

  7. Simon Bridges won’t rule out New Zealand First coalition despite superannuation differences
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2019/08/simon-bridges-won-t-rule-out-new-zealand-first-coalition-despite-superannuation-differences.html

    Simon says he will inform the electorate next year but it is pretty obvious there is no love lost and Winston will be dropped by National like the poisonous chalice we all know him to be. National are hoping for a landslide election in their favour so speculation will be unnecessary if they are right.

  8. National appears to have dashed the Government’s hopes of pushing through a second near bipartisan set of gun laws aimed at further tightening the country’s firearms rules.

    Although the second tranche of gun law reforms is still highly likely to become law, National leader Simon Bridges said his party was unlikely to support the legislation as it has done with prior gun law reform bills.

    “In short, the Government is going after the good guys and not the bad guys [with these rules].”

    Act leader David Seymour, who has also ruled out his support for the bill, said it was about time National woke up to the fact the proposed law would target law-abiding firearm owners.

  9. Isn’t this nice of them?

    You now, with all the clinical trials and credible scientific evaluations these companies have access to, you’d think they would have known the magnitude of harm and the devastating side effects their drugs would cause.
    Any one would think it was intentional.

    The firm is facing over 2,000 lawsuits linked to its painkiller OxyContin.

    Purdue told the BBC it was “actively working” towards a “global resolution” but would not comment on the amount.

  10. I just heard Ardern on the radio
    She said she does not want gangs to get access to guns which is why they are changing the law.

    How many gang members have a licensee and walk into a gun shop and buy a gun?

    She really is a stupid bitch.

    • Yes. She is so utterly stupid she has failed to realize that her hastily rushed in law changes are likely to result in the largest ever increase in guns on the black and grey market in the history of this country. You will have noticed that news of the confiscation is not very prevalent these days, that is because it is becoming clearer by the day that it is not being well supported. Police staff were ordered to hand in their own personal guns early so as to give the impression of massive compliance but, embarrassingly, that ain’t happening. Meanwhile those of us who have handed in our guns are upgrading. When I take delivery of my new rifle in the next couple of weeks I will have 50% more guns than I handed in all paid for by you the taxpayer, thanks very much.

      “Whats wrong with her? ”

      Well she is a low IQ, country hick who has swallowed the socialism scam hook, line and sinker.
      Look at Obama. His diction outside speeches prepared by others was similarly country hick.
      Yeehaw.

      The years of Mormon teachings would have knocked the ability to ‘question and grow’ right out of her- during the formative years.
      She is low energy (eating disorders?) so never made the effort to train the brain.
      The speaking is terrible but so was that of Julia Gillard – another Down Under female Labour PM who retreated to calling ‘misogynist’ when in a pickle.

  12. What we do know is that dairying brings in $14.4 billion in exports and nothing else can do that. It is perhaps pertinent to note in a similar time frame to the 260,000 dairy cow reduction there was an increase in individual vehicles in New Zealand of around 700,000 with a corresponding increase in GHG’s of around 743kts while all of agriculture reduced over the same period by 410kts. While Lotto still keep advertising V8 vehicles for Father’s Day prizes, it makes you realise as a nation we have quite a mind shift to go through on this whole debate yet.

  13. 20-Year Mortgages Hit Zero for First Time in Danish Rate History

    In Denmark’s $495 billion mortgage-backed covered bond market, another milestone was reached on Wednesday as Nordea Bank Abp said it will start offering 20-year fixed-rate loans that charge no interest.

    The development follows an announcement earlier in the week by Jyske Bank A/S, which said it will start issuing 10-year mortgages at a coupon of minus 0.5%. Danes can also now get 30-year mortgages at 0.5%, and Nordea recently adjusted its prospectus to allow for home loans up to 30 years at negative interest rates.

  14. Greens oppose extended hours for bars during Rugby World Cup 2019
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2019/08/greens-oppose-extended-hours-for-bars-during-rugby-world-cup-2019.html

    National MP Gerry Brownlee hit back at the Greens, labelling Logie’s speech “very sad” and “distressing”.

    “That was so distressing that the Green Party can stand up and say that this Bill is about linking drinking to rugby – it is not. It is about making sure that the widest number of New Zealanders who enjoy sport can have a look at it.”

    • Anti gun zealot Cahill has done immeasurable damage to the reputation of the police, already suffering due to the willingness of senior police to allow themselves to become politicized, and the respect in which Arms Officers and police in general were held by the licenced firearms owning community. His shrill attempts to blame LFOs for the inability of the police to properly administer the Arms Act thereby allowing Tarrant to obtain a firearms licence which he should not have been able to do and to tackle unlicenced violent criminals who sometimes use illegally held firearms (among many other forms of weapons) makes him sound like an idiot. He should wind his neck in. As for the National Party it is encouraging that they seem, at last, to be beginning to act like a proper opposition party keeping the follies and excesses of the governing coalition in some sort of check.
